Extending the GBN to Hinxton Genome Campus

The Granta Backbone Network (GBN) is the collegiate university’s privately owned fibre optic network. The decision was taken in 2018 to extend the network to Babraham Institute and Wellcome Sanger Institute (Hinxton) to enable greater collaboration between institutions.

Falcon-on-Drupal

UIS currently offers two different website content management systems, which is a duplication of cost and effort. To streamline our offerings, we're developing 'Falcon-on-Drupal' – retaining the concept of the Falcon service, but delivering it on the Drupal platform.

The collegiate university would like to create a unified application system for postgraduate funding so that applicants can apply for our internal funding as part of their application for admission (this is currently limited to a few of the larger funders).

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) project

Our Desktop and Systems team is currently exploring a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) as an additional way of providing managed desktop services to the University. This model hosts desktop software on a remote server and uses middleware to make applications available via an internet connection to any device, including desktop PCs, thin clients, phones and tablets.
